Days before his fighter is set to take on the undefeated Sebastian Zbik, trainer Freddie Roach discussed how they plan to take down the German middleweight. "[Zbik] has a European straight up style and pretty much fights in a straight line," Roach says. "I think our boxing ability is going to give him a lot of trouble. We have looked at thevideo and we are going to use a lot of angles on him." Like every good fighter, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. is prepared to put his trainer's strategy into practice. "I think my style is going to be there and my power is going to be there," the 25-year-old Mexican says. "But I have to know how to use it – that’s why we have worked so hard."
